Who shall we welcome?
Many times, I have heard my door knock and opened it to a person handing me tracts and literature from their churches & religion. I always smiled politely, received it and waved them goodbye as I shut the door. I never wanted to offend them so I would do this routine every time. Yet, I found this scripture and realized how God was actually against what I was doing.
"If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds." 2 John 1:10, 11
God tells us that whomsoever comes to us, or knocks at our door, or greets us at the parking lot bringing us a different Gospel than from what the Word of God teaches us, that we are not to greet them nor welcome them into our homes. We also cannot accept their tracts and literature. If we do so, we shall be partakers of their evil deeds. That is pretty strong, but God wants us to draw a line and not support them or having any part to do with them at all. We must have no part to do with false prophets.
We as Christians need to be wise. We also need to be strong. This will be one of the things we need to take into consideration as we live a life of boldness in Christ.
